people seem to like it, so i'm more prone to say, sounds good. young people made obama look better to older voters. the breach on nsa was so significant because it took away, it shattered that confidence that they had. then when you get into the implementation of the health law, which as tucker points out targets those young voters, it takes from them to give to middle-aged people, those voters respect going to like it. and then when it turns out that the president deceived voters during the re-election campaign be, well, that's enough to take breach into riot. martha: one of the things i find really interesting is the issue of jobs and the economy. now, we had a pretty good jobs number that came out this morning, and that is certainly news that the white house should feel good about. but over the past years, every poll we've looked at, you know, what's your most meaningful topic when you look at -- the economy and jobs. and be yet the president has constantly tried to pull everybody toward health care and convince them that also had a huge impact on the economy. i'm not sure peopl
